Now that foot pain is on my radar, it seems to pop up everywhere. This week in the media it was pretty high heel-intensive to say the least.
Stars on top
The first item that ran in People Awards Season Special February 2014 is right out of the Heel No Pain playbook. The article, “We Walked in Their Shoes”, had their editors try on the favorite shoe designers of nine top celebrities (Ruthie Davis worn by Sofia Vergara, Stuart Weitzman worn by Diane Kruger, Nicholas Kirkwood worn by Lupita Nyong’o etc. etc.) and report the results. All nine styles were pronounced beautiful but, alas, all but two left something to be desired in the comfort department.
What was missing from the picture, of course, was a quick spritz of Heel No Pain/Style that could keep these ladies on their toes longer and easier. This Oscar season, beauty without compromise is an attainable goal, at least for a few hours.
The next item was sent to me by a friend from the 15 February 2014 UK edition of THE WEEK which itself had excerpted ‘How to Wear High Heels’ from the Daily Mail piece ‘How to Survive in High Heels’ that ran in January. In the article, Mary Helvin, who was a top British model in the 1960s alongside Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy – and who is still, for the record, quite lovely – gives her practical and invaluable advice on negotiating stiletto challenges.
